|Doc Murph presents music from the Ed Wolf Collection - Doc Murph|
Eddie Wolf is a musician and retired teacher who plays and appreciates really good music, particularly jazz age tunes. He considers his musical mentor to be Ross Gorman, who gained fame playing with Paul Whiteman's Orchestra, playing the opening clarinet glissando on the Rhapsody in Blue. Gorman was Eddie's music teacher and made a fine reeds man out of Mr. Wolf. Eddie had a ton of 78 rpm recordings that he "bequeathed" to my custody to record and organize...

|Paul Whiteman - 4 unedited WAV files - two uncommon|
Here are four Paul Whiteman Acoustic recordings from the early 1920s, from my own collection of 78 RPM. Two of them, "In a Boat" and "Sweetheart," aren't very common - grimreaper doesn't seem to know about them - while the other two are just about the most common Paul Whiteman songs you could get. All of these files are in the WAV format and have not been modified in any way. The disc #s are Victor 18690 and 18789.

|Bing Crosby - It Must Be True - 1930 and 1931 - Gus Arnheim and His Orchestra - Bing Crosby, vocal - transfers from 78 rpm media by Doc Murph|
In 1930 when these recordings were made, the Gus Arnheim Orchestra, featured at the Cocoanut Grove in Hollywood, was the rage of the radio and the West Coast. Ironically Arnheim's vocalist, Bing Crosby, would within months of these recording sessions soar to incomprehensible fame as the premier vocalist of his generation. Yet at this time Bing Crosby was just a hot vocalist who had recently left the Paul Whiteman Orchestra and was becoming a soloist with Gus Arnheim...

|Paul Whiteman and His Orchestra - 1924 - Doc Murph's Paul Whiteman and His Orchestra|
1924 marked the final year for acoustically recorded phonograph records and the Victor Talking Machine Company lost no time pursuing electrical recording with the Western Electric Company System that became commercially available in 1925. Meanwhile Victor truly perfected the art of good recording with the old acoustic methods. This collection features the Paul Whiteman Orchestra before and after Paul's concert in 1924 "An Experiment in Modern Music" representing some very fine acoustically recor...

|Paul Whiteman and His Orchestra - 1925 - Doc Murph's Paul Whiteman and His Orchestra|
The Victor Talking Machine Company began using the Western Electric Hi Fidelity Sound System commercially in early 1925. Paul Whiteman, Victor's premier popular orchestra, began recording with the microphone on May 5, 1925. Herein are 10 representitive recordings from mid 1925 that demonstrate the Whiteman sound in its full "Orthophonic" glory.
